Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Angry Not a computer Genius, Tired of "Awaiting Responses"

I've spent utold hours trying to read all this junk about the "threads" and change this setting and change that setting! I've HAD it. I've read the responses from Blackbird and everyone else... Look, I'm not a computer genius, I don't even understand half this stuff. I used to use Napster quite easily, no problems, type in the name of my song and it downloaded. Then came Morpeus, same thing - pretty easy. Then...Limewire, my boyfriend stuck with the basic and is having WAY better luck than I am with the PAID Limewire Pro! I'm getting VERY upset. I purchased the Pro about 3 months ago and have had to download 3 updates and I have only been able to download about 8 songs to completion! I CONSISTENTLY get the AWAITING RESPONSES garbage. Could someone PLEASE tell me in PLAIN and simple English in very DETAILED steps HOW to get this ****ed thing to work or give me a FULL refund for it as it has NOT functioned properly and I see MANY people having dificulty with it? Thank you. Kathy Please send response to:******

Alright, tips for downloading...

Downloads, in any application, have to be managed. If you want to download "Song - Artist", and you search, and immediately click on teh first result you see, you might not get it. Waiting and letting the search complete will give you more results from more reliable uploaders, as well as multiple results. I would recommend always downloading from a file with multiple results, and set multiple files to be grouped together, so you can see if they occur.

I have tried most of the things you suggest with no luck. I will try the others and see if they help. But, it still doesn't answer the question: why didn't this problem occur until I got the Pro version? Pop-ups are a pain, but at least I got songs.

By the way, Mr Peerless, what difference does it make whether badkittykat posted as a guest or not?

I don't know why your problem seemed to come up when u installed pro. Probably coincidental and something else was changed on your system.

Try doing a clean install, if it really bothers you.

Next version (3.4) will introduce the "find more sources" button.

Is limewire going to do this by remembering one's search terms that were used to find the file and when the button is pressed it would search again using the same search terms as before to find more sources that are sharing a file of the same hash or is it going to search by the file's name and resume from anyone who returns a file with the same hash of the file that one is trying to resume?

As I recall, hash queries have been banned from gnutella due to the overwhelming amount of traffic.

LimeWire will search by filename until they have added a DHT. A distributed hash table would be a great christmas present for LimeWire's users (if one of the developers is reading this). Gnutella could be the first filesharing network to have a DHT that really works (unlike the one Overnet uses).

As a little old grandad who is absolutely astonished at all of this,(my son set it up for me), I am just delighted to have received some downloads. I suspect the 'peers' have just got fed up with me asking for more, like Oliver, nand doing everything wrong, so everything has slowed to a crawl, and I even get 'freezes, but I will persevere. Having missed out on the sixties, ( Iwas too busy working in a factory and helping her indoors to bring up the kids), I amreally pleased at getting an insight into what's going on today.
